Radios

Postby Essayons! » Thu Sep 18, 2008 9:26 pm

Probably the wrong forum but anyway...While planning upcoming expenditures for my U-boat project, I ran across a "hick-up"..
Looking at radio control systems, can anyone recommend a six channel surface use (75mhz) radio? As we all konow the 2.4 ghz radios don't work with subs, and all I can find are 4 channel radios.. I want the extra channels for animation, etc..

The Futaba CAP-9 will work for you as well. It is available on 75MHZ. Nice radio. BD.

Or get any air frequency radio that meets your needs and have it converted to 75Hz. Of course, check with the manufacturer to be sure that they will do the conversion! Most will.
